Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Connection flight was only 30 min, plus the 1st flight was delayed... Causing I missed the 2 nd flight"

Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."

Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "suites in business class were nice but doors were not functioning very smooth"

Pros: "seats and entertainment was great"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Pros: "The crew did their best to accommodate for the hot mess."
Cons: "The temperature was unbearable. My dirt and pants were soaked with sweat. It was very hot."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Cons: "The seats were in bad condition, I was surprised as Delta usually has well cared for interior and exterior airplanes."
Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."
Pros: "In flight tracking"
Cons: "Irregular serbice"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."
Pros: "Like the direct flight from Minneapolis to Honolulu and you even get a meal and snacks. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but prefer the direct flight than having a layover."
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, super crew, awesome non stop flight from Minneapolis. Could not ask for any better. Delta is the #1 airline."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "The new seats are extremely uncomfortable for sleeping. Even in Economy Comfort + I had a hard time finding a comfortable position. The short hard seats do not work well unless you are sitting essentially vertical."
Pros: "entertainment options are great. The flights are plentiful, so lots of options."
Cons: "No options for vegans on 10 hour flight!! Shame on you!! Our needs should be considered."
Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for over an hour we had to change planes. Notice that our aircraft isn’t working properly before you board it would be helpful so we aren’t 2 hours behind schedule having to sit on a hot airplane during covid"
Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."
Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Pros: "The ground crew worked really hard to get us going."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hours."
Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."
Cons: "They messed up the seat assignment I paid extra for, and while I bought WiFi for the entire trip it turned off halfway through."
Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"
Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."
Cons: "delayed almost 5 hours due to “air traffic,” flight had plenty of room and they did not offer any upgrades"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."
Cons: "I lost my connection flight to Denver in Miami because of the delay luggage"
Pros: "Flight was not full. We flew on a Tuesday in September and maybe that is a good time to fly. Also, there was slightly more room in our seat than expected. I am 6'1' and 216 lbs so air travel in coach generally approaches medieval torture for me."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."
Pros: "Delays, delays, delays. An initial delay of 1.5 hours due to a switched plane. Then they needed mechanics to check out a bird hit to the plane. That took another 3 hours to happen. And they boarded us first, then found the issue, deplaned us, had a gate switch and then the wait. Very frustrating! Once on board, everything went smoothly as it typically does."
Cons: "The long delay"
Pros: "Not exceptional"
Cons: "Not much room for moving around but really fast"
Pros: "Crew was nice and the staff at LAX was cool. Everything else was ok to good."
Cons: "My checked baggage got left behind at LAX. I got it the next day."
Pros: "efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag."
Cons: "Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!"
Cons: "This was the worst flight experience of my life I will never flyAmerican again"
Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Easy to check in before trip, curb side check in is amazing, staff was super helpful. Flight attendants were so nice. Overall great flying experience"
Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Staff was excellent like always."
Cons: "No outlets on the plane. My flight was suppose to have WiFi but it didn't work."
Pros: "Good seats after being moved. Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "4.5 hours late leaving. Returning flight 1.5 late on return flight."
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
Pros: "They have a huge selection of movies"
Cons: "They do not have gluten free options"
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
Pros: "Comfort was about equal to any other flight I've taken. Most of the crew members were friendly. Free wine."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment choices were lame. I suppose most people sleep on long flights. The food was not great. Mostly edible if you're really hungry. There was not enough room for everyone to put a carry on in an overhead bin. Luckily, I'm short and I keep mine under the seat."
Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
